STEREX plasma technology.
Make dangerous germs and odors a thing of the past!
Using cold atmospheric plasma, Sterex eliminates up to 99,9% of all enveloped viruses and bacteria in indoor air – including SARS-CoV-2 viruses and their mutations. The strong reduction of germs in the air leads simultaneously to a continuous, high-level decimation of germs on surfaces.
The use of Sterex plasma technology in the newly developed “Cubusan” air purification cube reduces germ loads in rooms to a minimum. It therefore becomes significantly safer for people to spend time in offices, business premises, hotels, schools, restaurants, retirement homes, and other closed rooms, due to the greatly reduced risk of infection.
An adult human breathes an average of 12 to 18 times per minute. With the exhaled air he or she spreads aerosols, which can contain viruses or bacteria – such as flu or coronaviruses. Depending on the room conditions and type of germs, these pathogens can remain in the air for up to six hours. There is therefore an increased risk of infection when several people spend time in closed indoor rooms. In order to reduce this risk, the Wintersteiger Group, together with an Austro-German research team, has developed an innovative indoor air purifier. More than six months of intensive engineering work have culminated in the development of the Cubusan CP-120 air purification device.
Fresh air like after a summer storm.
How does the Cubusan work? It is modeled on nature and produces small summer storms almost permanently. The disinfection performance is based on the action of hydroxyl radicals (OH) as part of an electrophysical process.
These are ions that also occur in the natural atmosphere and are produced by UV radiation from the sun or lightning discharges. You can clearly feel the effect in nature after a storm, when the first rays of sunshine come through the clouds. Then the air is noticeably fresher and cleaner.
Hydroxyl radicals are therefore also called the “detergents of the atmosphere”. The plasma generator in the Cubusan produces a mixture of air and cold, atmospheric plasma. This contains various oxygen species, including highly reactive hydroxyl radicals. These are distributed evenly throughout the room by the built-in fan and by particle movement (diffusion) and react electrophysically with the germs contained in the aerosols. Viruses and bacteria are killed and the room is disinfected by up to 99,9%.
